Ear Candles

Ear candling, also known as ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is a folk remedy said to assist the natural clearing of earwax (cerumen), and help in removing toxins from a person's ear.

A hollow candle is placed in the ear, and the other end is lit. As the candle burns down the debris inside the ear is drawn out into the candle by the flow of air through the hollow core.

Ear candles are effective in reducing earache, itchiness in the ears, headache, migraine, ear noise, stress and nervous tension.
